The name Kerwin Du Bois is popping up in every conversation relative to the Groovy Soca Monarch competition these days, and judging by the response of the massive crowd who came out to Army Fete on Friday night at the Queen’s Park Savannah, the people are in his corner.

Du Bois appeared on a stage that featured top billing acts of the season, Bunji Garlin, Fay-Ann Lyons, Destra Garcia, Cassi, Lyrikal, Blaxx, Mr Killa, Skinny Fabulous and others, however his appeal seemed to have been way higher than any entertainer who graced the Army Fete stage last night- in fact, some may say, Kerwin killed it.

Humble and simple are possibly the two words that could easily define Du Bois and walking onto the stage at the QPS to the instrumental of his hit ‘Too Real’, Du Bois showed fetters that it really doesn’t take too much to put on a good show. Cool as a cucumber and real with his emotions, Du Bois spoke to his fans, telling them that he couldn’t believe how many people had gathered at the spacious venue, and when he erred on stage, with humility he said, “ah look bad dey boy.”  But realistically, this season, Kerwin Du Bois can do no wrong in the eyes of carnival lovers.

Less talk and more action seemingly his slogan, the super producer and vocalist brought an incredibly high level of energy to the fete when he was introduced during the set of Blaxx and the Roy Cape all stars. Hands were almost immediately flung into the air crowd-side as Du Bois delivered songs like, ‘Too Real’, ‘Press A Button’ and ‘Monster Wine’ among others. For approximately 12 minutes he gave the fete lovers just what they wanted- just what they had come out to experience.

Army Fete, a staple on the carnival events calendar enjoyed another great turn out in 2014. Crowd capacity was in excess of 5,000 and the fete went on into the wee hours of the morning with no major incidents reported. Touting its slogan, ‘The safest fete in carnival,’ organisers delivered no doubt and now we look forward with bated breath to Army Fete 2015.

Now, take a look at Kerwin’s performance at Army Fete 2014, courtesy Triniscene.com- just in case you couldn’t be there to experience it yourself.

Both hard copy and digital, IslandLime Magazine’s on a mission. In the ever-expanding world that we now occupy, efforts continue to share the most authentic Caribbean energy, with everyone outside the Diaspora. It’s not a new idea but the man behind it has all the gumption it takes to make it make sense.

Simon Baptiste believes in the Caribbean potential.

Simon Baptiste says his team’s vision is to create a global platform that allows for the stories of Caribbean creators and creatives, to be shared with people around the world – people who are anxious to discover more about the heartbeat of the region. “Although we recognize the importance of what goes on within our region, there are also hundreds of tales – fiction and non fiction, being crafted by islanders in territories that stretch from North America ti Australia,” he said in a recent Ebuzztt chat. “It’s our job to reveal the players and the art.”

The magazine’s official launch took place on July 4th in Port- of- Spain, Trinidad and featured performances by Key DeVere and John G. In the aftermath of the launch, Simon issued a statement, thanking folks who came out in support. He explained that the rationale behind delivering the project now, lies in understanding that we – the Caribbean people, built nations. “A chain of over 700 islands, encompassing 1,063,000 square miles, has produced incomparable talent- people who have left and continue to leave an indelible mark on art, fashion, music, literature, entertainment, sports, science and technology,” he wrote. Baptiste praised his people, adding, “From Capitol Hill, to working spaces in Nairobi, to the offices of an advertising agency, Down Under, you’ll find someone who has island roots, and spreads the philosophy of what makes the Caribbean and its people so unbelievably spectacular.”
